    Our price:2.150,00

    Ts mint Atkin J-45 is based on the classic Gibson models of the 1940s. J-45 are known for their big open sound and warm, woody mid-range. Alistair Atkin learned what make a J-45 spin because of the many the repair of vintage guitars.

    The J-45 model is popular among singer-songwriters, rock and country players. Folk, flatpicking and fingestyle guitarists favour her grand tone. This J-45 Custom version is build with African Ovankol which is relative of Rosewood. This tonewood is really a great sounding and shares many of rosewood’s tonal properties but with a slightly fuller midrange and a very nice brightness. With the aged Sitka Spruce top she produces a rich and warm sound with very good bass tone and nice mid and highs. Because the neck is relatively thin the guitar is easy to play in many styles. Fingerstyle players with smaller hands will love the playability. The Opaque Yellow top colour is an original Gibson colour and was offer as an option back in the Thirties!

The pickup connects to a true Class A audiophile-quality preamplifier and delivers ultra-low noise and distortion!
